Harry Archer, the thirteen-year-old son of Tom Archer, of New Hartford, was taken suddenly and violently ill last Monday, with what quickly proved to be scarlet fever of the most malignant type. A physician was at once called in and did all that medical science could suggest for the little sufferer, but he grew steadily worse. A Waterloo physician was called in consultation, but all proved unavailing and Friday morning he died. Owing to the public feeling of uneasiness he was buried the evening of the same day. Saturday an older sister and younger brother were stricken with the same fever. Accounts from Willoughby, four miles north of New Hartford, bring news that two children of Freeman Bass are down, and there is serious talk of closing the schools for the present.

The funeral was held at the house Friday morning and the remains interred in Fairfield cemetery. Harry was taken sick Sunday night, having been to church and Sunday school in the morning, and died the following Tuesday. His sudden death was a shock to his parents and friends, who have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
